<- 4 am workouts 3 days a week, right after work. The PD has keys to the local HS football gym, nice job perk.

Been maintaining my weight pretty much within the same 7-8 pound range, up and down. The flu did take 3 pounds off me overnight. Pretty amazing how much water your body can sweat off in one night.

I don't get to go to the gym since my work hours suck, but I made up for it by buying my own recumbent bicycle and Bowflex so I have my own workout station at home. I also made sure to put a TV with satellite there so I can have the time pass by easier while working out. Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do to fill out those tight tee shirts that are still trendy in L.A.

Did you notice that the BG wasn't even visible on camera when the cop started running?

Instead of running and hooting-hollering I think he could have tried just walking toward the guy and catching him by surprise.

I'm serious. We work 12hr shifts, 4 on 4 off, 5a-5p. On my 1st and 3rd day at work I get to work out from 5a-7a. Something started under my old Chief. OUr new chief doesn't like it and seems like every week there's some new reason workouts get cancelled.

Ya'll don't all get paid workouts?

I've heard of paid workout time, but it's only for SWAT or certain departments which had some good contract negotiations.

I used to fight to keep my weight in check as well. I do not have that problem anymore. I do Crossfit and I am faster, stronger and in better shape than I was 20 years ago coming out of Army basic training when I was 18 years old.

I don't know of many departments that have paid workouts in my state. The only one that comes to mind is Myrtle Beach but that's only for the beach patrol officers. They get to swim, run and lift on duty if they have time.

Our officers can work out on duty twice a week (they get 90 minutes) instead of taking a meal break.

Nice perk.

True. Although in 90 minutes, you can get a decent workout and still grab a quick bite.

I'm four weeks into CrossFit. Getting stronger and cardio is improving. Weight loss is a result of the vomit from the workouts.

LOL. I've not actually thrown up from it but I've come close. Today's WOD is pretty brutal so I'm not looking forward to it. I've been at it for over a year now. It's an unbelievable workout.

Just a little background on our latest foot pursuit. Saferide is a program where 2 civilians pick up cooperative drunks and give them a ride home or to various detox facilities.

http://vancouverrecoveryclub.com/Van..._saferide.html


Just last week a homeowner came home to find someone in her home (break and enter) and scared him off. She flagged down Saferide. One of the civilians get in a foot pursuit and called it extremely well on his radio. The foot pursuit lasted 8 blocks and involved jumping over 4 foot fences and cutting through several yards. The highlight was climbing onto a second floor balcony and then jumping over a 10 foot fence into a neighbouring yard. Eventually the suspect ran into a dog handler.

I walked the route with him afterwards and couldn't believe how far they had run and was able to broadcast so well. He's been working there for 5 years and learned from listening to the police radio how to call it properly.

My boss and I wrote him up for a civilian commendation.

I haven't puked either, but we certainly have had the bucket out just in case. One WOD was a ton of burpees and then a a million squats, lunges, jumping lunges, jumping squats, and then more regular squats and lunges. Got queasy. Definitely got light-headed.

What amazes me is that during week 1, my recovery would take days. Now, I feel almost fine after a night's sleep. Even at my age (39 as of Jan 30th) the body adapts better than I thought it would.

The only thing I have trouble with is movements that require jumping. My left knee just ain't havin' it.

How often are you going?
